  • If I had any doubt that you were trolling, this would have removed it. I can accept that you just can't fathom people buying a camera because it gets them the pictures they want.  It might blow ...
  • Replied in Big Sur
    It's probably further than you want to travel.  It can take six hours just to drive across LA!  But if you get a chance, Big Sur is lovely.
  • Replied in Agreed.
    I had a very hard time choosing between Canon's 5D v3 and their 6D.  When I had a chance to play with both, looking through the viewfinders made my choice for me. I used to shoot with a D60, this ...
  • There's an old proverb.  I'll rephrase it to be more family-friendly:  If my grandmother had boy parts, she'd be my grandfather. What that means is we must deal with the world as it is. Of course, ...
  • I agreed with virtually everything you had to say, except for this. I "liked" your reply in any case. Imagine doing a hike from the bottom of the Grand Canyon to the top. Now imagine doing it at ...
  • ... so it's fast primes for me, for the most part.  If I do find myself in Italy, I'd like to spend most of my time there in the Alps, and I hope tripods are allowed there?
  • On my 5D (v3) I press the * button to autofocus.  A half-press of the shutter button causes the camera to meter the scene, but has nothing to do with focus.  My 5D (v1) and D60 (not 60D) behaved ...
  • ... is that some people crave attention.  Starting threads that are designed to ruffle feathers in a place where most people won't go, won't get people the reaction they want.  I predict the only ...
  • You seem to start a lot of threads like this.  I understand;  some people like controversy.
  • For me, it's not worth considering if it doesn't.  It's a moot point because my 5D v3 is only 13 months old, but ...
  • Playing devil's advocate here.  There are two obvious cases when wifi can get you the photo you're after. One is wildlife.  Cameras look somewhat like rifles when you have big telephoto lenses on ...
  • Replied in No!!!
    What you say is true.  BUT - and there's always a but - a lens will only give your photos that punch if you use it.  Canon made a 300 mm f/2.8 and a 200 mm f/1.8, these are some of the best lenses ...
  • It comes in a few parts, that add up to my having purchased a 5D v3 a little bit more than a year ago, which feels recent to me.  (The last SLR camera I bought was the original 5D many years ago.) ...
  • That's the important part.  If you don't use it, it's an expensive dust collector.  Sell it, and get the zoom if it's the right focal lengths for you.
  • If they did, I missed it, and I read the replies before posting. I don't own a 6D and have only used one briefly.  But I can answer this question for the D60 (not 60D), the 5D v1, and the 5D v3, so ...
  • I'll have to second the recommendation to stop here.  It's an excellent park.  Very short walk to an overlook where you can view the falls.  Great redwood hike leading several miles up into the ...
  • You're making bizarre and unfounded assumptions, and you're starting to belittle me because I'm talking about facts. For example you're suggesting that I only hike near rest areas; in another ...
  • But there appear to be some disagreements about the facts here. Yes, this is the result of doing research. It's true that there have been fatal attacks by wolves on humans in Eurasia, but not in ...
  • A lot of peoples' families worry about them hiking alone. If you don't have one already, you might want to consider carrying a personal locator beacon (PLB) or a satellite communications device ...
  • Any specific camera doesn't cost very much to produce, but the R&D and tooling to mass produce the whole line of them is expensive.  The more of a camera model that get sold, the lower the unit ...
